City of the High Cythrons, Alpha puts out a bounty, Dredd doggedly pursues Nosferatu (write his name in blood), Garp makes the nightlight flight.
Anderson Psi Division makes her debut (well, in her own series), the worm turns (did I use that pun already?), another night, another graveyard shift, Rogue and the boys are all at sea and a bounty hunting duo become a bounty hunting trio.
Robin Smith brings in a Rogue Trooper cover with great sunset Souther and Nort insignias in the background. One earthlet in Tharg's Nerve Centre wants to buy her fiancé a Judge Dredd duvet cover as a surprise wedding present (though I feel that publishing a letter in the comic that they both read may spoil … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 371: Sláine action figure this issue! Rebel with a cause… Rogue Trooper
Another of my first batch of comics has a Cam Kennedy cover and the first apperance of bio-wire. A very much reduced Tharg's Nerve Centre - just the Thargnote, in fact, plus a Titan advert for the Judge Death collection and a non-Titan advert for bubble gum. Sam Slade, Robo-Hunter: The Slaying of Slade Part … Continue reading 2000ad Prog 317: The Bio-wire… Creeping killer of Nu Earth!
/ You can't go wrong with a Kevin O'Neill cover featuring Nemesis slicing his way through a squad of Terminators in front of a fiery background. Ro-Jaws' Nerve Centre. As you can tell, it's a take-over week as the mouthy sewer droid introduces the prog. Rogue Trooper by Gerry Finley-Day and Dave Gibbons. If we … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 230: Revenge of the Warlock! Nemesis hits back – inside!
You know Tharg is trying to push a series when it appears on a cover for two weeks running. This was sufficiently unusual for me to notice this when I was collecting the back progs in the mid-eighties. Kev O'Neill is back for a full body portrait of one of the captives of the Alien … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 223: The Alien Pit!
I remember the day I bought this comic. It was from the former Fantasy World in Hanley around 1986 or 1987 and just before a visit to see my mum who was recovering from an operation in hospital so when reading this actual physical comic it always takes me back to that hospital ward. For … Continue reading 2000AD Prog 222: Are you pure? Nemesis the Warlock – new sword and sorcery thrill starts inside!
Judge Dredd bursts through a map of a Mega-City One sector in this Brian Bolland cover. Tharg introduces the contents page, with a fantastic painting by Ron Smith of Mega-City One by Night. The city looks golden - probably more through a trick of the sunset or sodium lighting than from the blocks looking yellow. … Continue reading Judge Dredd Annual 1981: 2000 A.D.’s top sci-fi hero bursts into action!
For such a momentous cover, celebrating the third birthday of the prog, and the start of the Judge Child saga, you'd have thought a new image would have been commissioned - what's actually happened is that one of the panels from inside has been blown up and coloured... By the way, that line about the … Continue reading 2000ad and Tornado Prog 156: Zarjaz 3rd Birthday Issue! Have you Seen this Boy? The Judge Child – A great new Judge Dredd epic starts inside – in Colour!
This prog we have a Cam Kennedy V.C.s cover, showing the star-troopers and V.C.s in hand-to-hand combat while spacewalking. Tharg's Nerve Centre starts off with another plug for the Judge Child Quest (Judge Dredd won't be appearing in this prog though) and a trail for a special competition next prog. Reader's contributions include a call … Continue reading 2000AD and Tornado Prog 155: Join the V.C.s… Vape a space-invader today!
